Unfortunately I don’t have any books to suggest. Just google it and there should be a ton or articles to choose from.

One simple rule you can follow is called the 50 / 20 / 30 rule. The rule states that you should spend up to 50% of your after-tax income of needs and obligations that you must-have or must-do. The remaining half should be split up to 20% savings and debt repayment and 30% to everything else that you might want.

Similar to your 401K, set up a separate savings account where you automatically deposit that 20% of every paycheck to. Don’t touch that account unless there’s an emergency. You’ll see that account grow quite nicely over time. After you’ve built a nice nest egg, start looking into investing.

Also, consider what major expenses you’ll need to save for - new car, a house, engagement / marriage / honeymoon, kids & their college.
